.c.? you have politicians bragsing about not -- bragging about not understanding technology and then voting on technology laws. you had the former federal trade commissioner say at this conference -- it was an antitrust class i once audited -- say that government agencies sue companies sometimes for all the wrong reasons. if silicon valley does something stupid, it's maybe self-correcting, but should we be more worried about washington, d.c.? >> should we be more worried about washington, d.c. than silicon valley? i think we should be worried about them for opposite reasons. the smartest people in america go to silicon valley. the most brilliant people in america whether it's mark zuckerberg or reid hoffman, they're brilliant, they're the best educated people. hoffman was at stanford, zuckerberg was at harvard, the elite now goes into the internet. that's where the smart kids go. so they're driving policy. the problem with america is given itself anti-political -- given its anti-political culture, the smartest people don't go into politics. and that process is come pounded -- compounded mor
a shift. a slow recognition of the power of this industry to create jobs, new technological breakthroughs, allowing us to bring much more energy to the market than anybody thought possible, and this is making a fantastic difference, and we can see too during this recession, our industry added about 400,000 new jobs. you look at what's going on in north dakota, in 2005, they produced 3,000 barrels a day. they're close to 600,000 barrels a day in their production. so if we had the power of government behind this revolution that's happening in the oil and gas industry in america, we could make such a big difference. we think within a dozen years, we could be fairly self-sufficient in our oil needs between ourselves, canada, and our bio fuels, and think of the world having that much extra supply from us. think of the stability of the world's oil market that we could bring to bear having that extra production coming from north america. so it's really critical that we have government, no matter who is elected supportive of this approach. connell: thank you very much for coming on. >> sure, than
oh, we're coming to get you. this dude is on the committee of science and technology. as would say he's from the tech-mology committee. and you know who else is on that committee? todd akin. all these guys from congress, i got t this is a good one. this is when lucifer burned the dinosaur bones. let's put the dumbest guys on the science and technology committee. if you think that's bad we're just warming up. a book with letters to the edit editor. the constitution of slavery to the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people. may actually have been a blessing in disguise. the blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would some day be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the earth. oh, i don't know why i didn't see it that way? it's a blessing in disguise. why don't you be my slave, and you do all my work. if you don't i'll whip you. does that sound like a blessing in disguise? and how hot is your wife? i might want to have sex with her. and what about your daughters. should have i sex with them befor
epitomizes can be difficult to think about because it's a relationship among people, technology and work processes. it's not a property or a capability that can be ascribed to people or robots independently, and that's why the term "robotic geologist" is so misleading. the relation of people and robots in practical work is difficult even for the scientists to describe. mer scientists have said they could do in a day what took the rover many months. but they're thinking mostly about those long drives. astronauts would leave the rovers in the dust. but there's no shortcut for the hours required to do a spectral analysis or a pixel by pixel scan of an infrared panorama. nobody's used instruments like these in the field before. so how the rover's automation and human actions are dependent on each other can be difficult to explain. because we don't think about it in practice. in terms of what's called phenomenonnology, the rover is seen through. as we say, like using a cane. in terms of -- the rover is embodied in our activity. it becomes transparent like a hammer, a boik -- a bicycle or even

of technological innovation, representative broun's views are not in the national interest. he is by any measure, unqualified to make decisions about science, space, and technology. wow. ready for something really scary? one of broun's cohorts is todd akin who holds the theory that women can prevent getting pregnant in instances of what he calls legitimate rape. >>> up next, can joe biden save the day for the democrats when he debates paul ryan in thursday? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. >>> i'm milissa. the fungal meningitis outbreak continues to worsen. so far, 105 people are sick and eight have died. in california, it could take days for gasoline prices to fall. jerry sandusky will be sentenced tomorrow on 45 counts of child abuse. he released a statement yesterday asserting his innocence. back to "hardball." >>> is there anything more exciting than joe biden thinking it's up to him to get the lead back? it's tivo time. there's like a 50% chance he's going to come out at the next debate with his shirt off. he's probably covering himself with animal fat right now to make h

[applause] look -- we have got a different view about how you bring jobs and prosperity to america. the strong economy does not trickle down from the top. it grows from a thriving middle- class, and folks working hard to get into the middle-class. i think it is time our tax code stopped rewarding companies that ship jobs overseas. let us reward small businesses and manufacturing here in ohio, products made in america. that is the choice in this election. i believe we can create more jobs by controlling more of our own energy. after 30 years of inaction, we raised fuel standards. by the middle of the next decade, your cars and trucks would go twice as far on a gallon of gas. today, the u.s. is less dependent on foreign oil than at any time in two decades. it is time to move forward. my plan would cut our oil imports in half, and invest in the clean energy cr

the most compelling persuasive and winning argument against the death penalty. second, technology can provide help. the wonders of dna testing are beginning to be visible. technology is neutral. it convicts and finds innocent. we must make it a regularized part of the system. giving defendants access to dna testing and evidence whenever it might be relevant. as the case of the west memphis three make so clear coerced interrogations continue to be the bane of fair trials. but even here there is an answer. as one who was a prosecutor for many years, i can tell you that having a tape recording of interrogations would help everybody, and it would make clear if there had been improper pressure e earthed on the defendant or witness and it would also protect the interrogating officer from the false claims much sufficient pressure that had been brought to bear. the audio or video would make clear what had actually been said, again eliminating so many of the arguments on both sides. the cost of recording interrogation is too insignificant to worry about. every cell phone just about has the cap
